If you’re currently planning a wedding, congratulations! It’s such an exciting time, but can also get quite costly. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can save a few pennies. By being a little bit creative you can still have all the beautiful touches you’d like, while making sure you stick to your budget.
Wedding stationery can often be quite expensive, but simple elegant invitations are easy and cheap to make yourself – plus it’s something fun you can do with your bridal party. Pop open the bubbly and throw you and your bridesmaids a craft evening!
You Will Need
- Brown 15 x 15 cm Cards
- Letter and Ampersand Stamps
- Fuchsia Ink Pad (you could also choose a colour that ties in with your theme)
- Ring Stamp
- Cream Lace Trim
- Pearl Stickers
For the Inlay
- Iridescent White Paper
- Free Downloadable Wedding Invitation Inlay Template (opens in Word and will need to be downloaded on a computer)
- Access to a printer!
- Cutting Mat
- Craft Knife
- Craft Glue
How to Make
1. Cut two strips of lace trim to size and stick along the top and bottom of the card with craft glue.
2. Use the letter stamps to print ‘X & Y’ (your initials) diagonally from top left to bottom right of the card.
3. Use your wedding rings stamp in the top right corner.
4. Add four of the adhesive pearls just underneath and above both the lace trims.
Make a sample card first using a spare piece of paper so that you can experiment with the layout of your invitations without wasting any materials. You can then use the sample as a model to help you with the rest.
5. For the inlay, add the text you’d like to the downloadable template and print on your lovely shimmery white paper (you’ll get two inlays per page). Cut to size and stick to the inside of the card.
